Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great program for expanding minds

This educational program is just what we need in today's society. Less pseudoscience based on religion and more actual science based on scientific evidence that actually follows the scientific method. In the past few years there has been surge in religion based politics passing or trying to pass laws based on beliefs rather than actual facts.

Informative for adults, I watched the whole season already!

It's more for adults, I enjoy it, there is some humor and important and time appropriate problems are addressed and examined with science. Very interesting , in that we really don't know what's happening around us, this show shines light on these very issues. Cant wait for season 2 on Dec 29, 2017. Go Bill!
